Fiske, David History of October Mountain State Forest in Western Massachusett History,
Nature- Environment,
Nature- Other
October Mountain State Forest takes in 16,500 acres, making it one of the largest public recreation areas in Massachusetts. Much of the forest was once a sprawling private estate and game preserve, created by William C. Whitney, a man of wealth and prominence. Over time, the game preserve was dismantled and most--but not all--of the animals were relocated. Fire and the elements took their toll on the dormant structures, and the large estate came into the possession of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Various Civilian Conservation Corps projects made this natural resource more accessible and usable by the public. One project in particular created a lake with picnic and camping facilities. Known as Felton Lake, this site has had its share of successes and setbacks, and has seen tragedy and happiness. Today, besides a bridge and dam built by the CCC, only a few ruins of a Boy Scout camp remain at the lake.

Ranging from the humorous to the heart-felt, these stories celebrate native culture and its strong links to the natural world. We learn an Abenaki canoeing song, explore over seven different animals in the Northwest legend of Loon's Song and discover why America is called Turtle Island. For older audiences the performance features beautiful legends of the spirit like Jumping Mouse. Join one of New England's favorite tellers as these rich stories create a colorful weave of the landscape. Through these how and why legends, students begin to understand how Native American culture clothed their world in story and how this enlivened both imagination and world. "Your stories were wonderful. The teachers and the students agreed that your presentation is one of the best we've ever had. Thank you so much for bringing to life our study of myths and legends."
